Island sights in Saaremaa
- Sort by:
Vilsandi, 6km (4mi) long and in places up to 3km (2mi) wide, is a low, wooded island, the largest of 161 covering an area of 18,155ha forming the Vilsandi National Park off Saaremaa's west coast. One of the island's highlights is a working ostrich farm. Early May to mid-June is the best time for visiting - there's a ferry from Papisaare.
Small cliffs rear up along the west coast of the 32km (19mi) southwestern Sõrve Peninsula. This is where the island's magic can really be felt. A bike or car trip along the coastline will expose you to some fabulous views. This sparsely populated strip of land saw some of the heaviest fighting of WWII, and some of the scars remain.
